A Christian County Constable was arrested yesterday for allegedly being in possession of a stolen golf cart.
Hopkinsville police were dispatched to Bahama Drive yesterday afternoon after an employee of the Country Club identified a cart which was reported stolen in 2008. Police were able to match the serial number on the cart with one reported stolen three years ago and took the information to the Christian County Attorney’s office where an arrest warrant was issued for 41-year old District 5 Constable Mark Graham of Hopkinsville.
Graham was arrested around 5pm on receiving stolen property charges and lodged in the Christian County Jail, but is now out on bond. The golf cart is valued at $1,600 and was stolen June 9th, 2008 from the Country Club. At the time, employees of the Country Club told police someone broke into a secured building to take the golf cart.
Graham is the president of the Christian County Constables Association and has spoken at Christian Fiscal Court at least twice on behalf of constables who believe they should have a right to place lights and sirens on their vehicle without interference of county government.
The last time he spoke, Judge-Executive Steve Tribble told him his office received a complaint against Graham saying he was driving recklessly in north Christian County in his constable vehicle, which Graham denied.
